Simple contact forms on a dedicated page of a website – it is the most popular type of multilingual contact form because it fulfills one of the basic needs of any business, namely the communication channel used to keep in touch with actual and potential customers.

Facebook contact forms – it is a more efficient method of contact. Although the default system offers a messaging option, having a Facebook contact form on your business page allows you to better manage the information coming from your account. Plus it generates a friendly database of all the people who contacted you which might come in handy. In addition, it will be easier for your followers to address themselves in their native language if you have a multilingual form on Facebook, this way you will boost interaction with all the niches of your target audience.

Subscription forms – multilingual contact forms can help you increase the chances on winning new subscribers. Simply add a check-box at the bottom of your form to confirm the subscription. It is easy and in some situations can be very efficient, especially if you have a newsletter in multiple languages. Here is a good example how one of our clients used it:

It is a known practice to grow a database which can always mean new potential clients or supporters for your business. Freebies usually generate buzz around a business, which can be harvested and transformed in a strong community. In such cases, having a multilingual contact form can only raise chances to gain new supporters.
